ABSTRACT
Honey is a natural complex food product produced by bees from nectar of plants and from
honeydew. It is a unique sweetening agent that can be used by humans without processing. The
study is based on the determination and analysis of the electrical conductivity of this natural product
with change in temperature. A total of six honey samples were selected, with one sample each from
Makurdi, Sapele, Yola, Saki, Sokoto and Owerri for analysis of electrical conductivity. The electrical
conductivity of the samples was measured with digital Conductivity/TDS/Salinity meter (PEN TYPE
AZ-8361) and the data obtained were statistically analysed using one-way analysis of variance
(ANOVA) at the level of significance, where p ≤ 0.01 The results obtained showed that the average
electrical conductivity values of the honey samples varied from 9.7 – 111.6 × 10-6 S/cm and
therefore presented electrical conductivity values which are characteristic of nectar honey.
